The Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) has announced Ulster University Belfast Campus is one of the final nine contenders for the best works of architecture in Northern Ireland in 2024, improving the quality of the built environment and showcasing its positive impact on the region.
This landmark project marks a watershed shift in UK university development trends, stepping away from the campus and embracing the city as part of the university experience. The urban presence of the Ulster University campus, along with its 16,000 students and staff, will help boost wide-scale regeneration in Belfast’s up-and-coming cultural quarter, as well as in the wider area.
An experienced panel of architects from Ireland and Great Britain evaluated twenty submissions to determine the shortlisted projects for the RSUA Design Awards. Each project will now be visited by the panel for a rigorous round of judging that will lead to the winners’ announcement in early May 2024.
